Status-Quo Thru Midweek

The weather pattern won’t be changing for a few more days, so that means a continuation of what we’ve gotten accustomed to: Ample sunshine, very warm and humid with scattered to occasionally numerous PM showers and thunderstorms. There are changes on the horizon, however. A turn to less humid and cooler conditions awaits for the end of the week and next weekend. We haven’t been able to say that in quite some time.

Forecast Discussion

Western North Carolina remains in the throes of typical August weather conditions, with the western extension of the Bermuda High remaining dominant for a few more days. That will keep the area supplied with rather rich Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico moisture sources to spark those scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

A pair of cold fronts are also scheduled to cross the area, a mid-August rarity. One will push through on Thursday, with the second front passing through on Friday. The first one will have most of the moisture, so showers and thunderstorms will be scattered with this feature.

Behind the second cold front, cooler and much drier air awaits, and you’ll really be able to feel the difference on Friday and headed into next weekend.
